Time to move Guan Eng

Lim Guan Eng, as the Chief Minister of Penang, should really start moving forward and show what he is capable of as a state leader, not as an opposition leader.

No point wasting too much time digging old fault of the previous government; the Penang folks knew how corrupted the previous government was… they might not know the details, but they were suspecting something huge.

Or else, does DAP think that they won the state in March because Penangties love them that much? People voted for Pakatan because they no longer have fate with BN, and Pakatan was their only option for making a change… and a change is what LGE and his state exco need to do.

What the people want to see is better governance and better quality of living… and digging old fault doesn’t help. What LGE needs to do is to be clean and transparent, improve infrastructures, create job opportunities and reduce cost of living.

The BN central government probably won’t help much to build the state… it won’t be easy for LGE obviously. But that’s what a political leader should do, to overcome difficulties and to find solutions… or else any Ah Beng could have become Chief Minister if it’s an easy job.

As credit due, LGE didn’t perform badly during his tenure for the last few months… but it certainly hasn’t been great yet. Show us what you got Lim Guan Eng, as a true leader, a government leader, and not just an opposition leader.
